Last Sunday "two in a teacup" set off up the highway to the New Exeter Market for our first ever stall at a market. Driving along the Tamar River early in the morning with fog and mist over the river was stunning and a beautiful start to the day. We set up our stall inside the hall with many other wonderful stalls and were lucky to be next to my niece's beautiful stall -'love nina'. We had lots of positive comments about our work and made some good sales too. More importantly it is our first real public showing of our work and so it was fantastic to meet people and get their feedback.
We learnt so much about pricing, display and what items sell and why and what changes we should make if we have another stall. The day was perfect with blue skies and sunshine and so many people came out to enjoy the market.
We sold one of our little nests to a beautiful little girl and her mother - so exciting to actually meet its new owner.
We are both keen to have another stall at a market some time soon so now it is back to the drawing board to refine some of our works and create new pieces.
